Found this. Wonder what could have been if he hadn't been hurt... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KiWqYNyIusU
SS. There is a Turf and Sport Digest November 1960 issue for sale. Starting bid $9.99 and looks to be in excellent shape. It has a nice picture of Hail To Reason and Hirsch Jacobs on the cover.

  • Buckpasser · Just a paragraph on the inside cover about HTR and Jacobs. But it is a nice cover picture. · 254 days ago
Buck, I just purchased the DRF American Racing Manual 1961. Featuring 2 notable horses- Kelso, and Hail To Reason. Can't wait!

  • travel_vic · still available for $65.00 a year even though they went nuts and tried to make them all CD between 1998 and 2002 · 287 days ago
  • travel_vic · Our library has them back to the 20's and upstairs in the press box they go back to 1950...You wouldn't believe the changes in tracks, PARTICULARLY Belmont..Wished they had left it the same way it was before the late 60's reconstruct · 287 days ago
SS86. I was just reading an old Turf and Sport Digest from March 1938 and it spoke about Patrice Jacobs the daughter of the great trainer Hirsch Hacobs. It seems she was named after Damon Runyon's wife. He was a client of Jacobs. For those who don't know him, he was the one who coined the phrase : all horse players die broke. It was the title of a book of his. Jacobs had a young filly named Sweet Patrice whose sire was a son of the great Broomstick out of the top filly Prudery.

If you could go back and meet/see any horse(s) throughout the history of racing, who would they be?

  • travel_vic · Northern Dancer was a "speed" horse so his winning at Pimlico was not much of a surprise....It was because his country of origin was not the USof A that the bia was such a big thing...He ran the belmont that year at Aqueduct since Belmont was closed and an old Detroit Red Wing gave me his losing tickets which I sent to the Hall of Fame · 487 days ago
  • kay.robinett · Jay S - I love the thought of Regal Mind. There is nothing anyone could do to help Eight Belles, Ruffian, or Go for Wand. They were treasures when alive, and always given the best treatment any horse could receive - their breakdowns were tragic accidents. But Regal Mind - we could have helped him had we only known. · 487 days ago
This is for Ssilence86 about books on Hail To Reason. The books that mention him in a paragraph or so would include The History of Thoroughbred Racing in America by William Robertson. While he gets a brief mention this a nice book to have regardless. Bloodhorse a second Quarter of a century has some information on him. A nice book cover racing from 1941 to 1965 to have as a reference. The American Racing Manual of 1962 will have his races and some commentary. Note that the Racing Manuals cover the year before so you do want 1961 volume. As I am sure you have found Edward Bowen's books Dynasties and Legacies of the turf has an history of the Bieber-Jacobs stable. The book might not know about is American Race Horses of 1960. This is a series of books from the 30's or earlier through the '60's that chronicle the best of that year. There is in this book a picture of HTR and some information on his races and his race record. 2nd hand only on Amazon or ebay. Do not pay more than $40 for this book. I have seen it even for $15 or $20. My advice is to look for some magazines which would cover this period Turf and Sport Digest for 1960 and the Jan. copy of 1961 would give you some contemporary information. Same with Bloodhorse or the Thoroughbred Record. Would be found on ebay. Will keep looking, but that is all for now. Sorry posted here because I couldn't find the original thread.
